Tire vertical stiffness is influenced by many factors. The inflation pressure, tire dimension, and usage of run-flat tire are considered in this paper. Robust multi-objective optimization technique is used to optimize the suspension performance considering the variation of the tire vertical stiffness. Three objective functions, discomfort, road holding, and working space are used to evaluate the dynamic behavior of the suspension considering a two-degree-of-freedom quarter-car model excited by a random road profile. The Pareto-optimal solutions in terms of suspension spring stiffness and damping coefficient are obtained and compared with the one computed by means of a deterministic approach. Solutions obtained by means of the robust optimization method are proven to be less sensitive to the possible variations of the tire vertical stiffness without influencing significantly the expected performance.
